I was supporting the Poms in the Ashes. Not enough Victorians in the Aussie line-up.

Remember that friendly between Eng vs Aus at Upton Park a few years back.

You blokes played your best team in the first half and we pumped you 2-nil. And then you had 11 fresh players for the second half and we still ended up winning 3-1.....

England continues to live in this dreamland where they reckon they are some kind of football heavyweights. Most of their "successes" have been a result of luck. They have never been able to match the supremacy of Brazil, Italy and Argentina. The World Cup win of '66 was a flash in the pan, ala Denmark at Euro 92 and Greece at Euro 04.

Mind you, youve got a reasonable midfield now. Gerrard, Lampard and Beckham. What a shame you got such shite keepers and forwards.

Quarrels. Nothing else. He blamed Sorin (who is Pekerman's right hand) for having favoured Riquelme instead of him, and Pekerman, smart enough, understood Veron's attitude to "I'm the number1" and has kicked his ass out of the argentinian team. That's what president Moratti should do, too. I want a team based around Adriano, with more brazilian players, not surely Veron who doesn't speak to Adriano anymore. Adriano confirmed it last night in an interview, "Veron is a good player, but he must put his feet back on the ground". Too generous dear Adriano, he must put his face in the shit. Veron

Yeah, probably. But I'm so bored with this situation, I could never expect something like it has happened. it is sad, my fan soul got really hit. In the end, Juventus is a victim, too. Moggi couldn't care the less about them, he only used Juventus to fill his pockets and the ones of his bloody collaborators with dirty money. But in the same time I can't figure out that no one of the Juventus owners knew what was going on. Juventus must pay, if they remain in Serie A the whole credibility of italian football goes f.cking itself.

Well with players like Gordon Banks, Bobby Moore and Bobby Charlton i wouldn't exactly call it a flash in the pan.

Have you been laying under the sun a bit too much lately, shite forwards, that really would be a funny sentence if it wasn't so sad

Rooney (who is overrated anyway), has messed up his foot and is in doubt for the opening game. A great situation for a striker to be in in the lead up to a world cup.

Owen (who I do admire) hasn't played often enough due to injury and is unlikely to be in any kind of decent form.

Crouch is a lanky, inconsistent nobody and Vassell is only in the squad cause you got no one else decent enough.

If England were smart, they'd select Andy Johnson (only incuded as a reserve, isn't he??) A classy old-fashioned striker who usually comes up with the goods. Been in good form for Palace too.

Guys I just saw again , guess I didnt play much attention to spain list , but now I've seen holy shit , I wonder hows Spain coach head after today's game , Valdez's game thats just so....... I know Canizares , hes good , but a little too old ? Casillas is fine as well , but Reina ? Whos this guy , instead of the keeper of the Spain and Euro Champ , a guy that doesnt exactly count with the best defense in the world ...........

And also just saw , are my eyes going crazy , or he just called 3 strikers ?

No, 5 strikers, 2 number 9 (Torres and Villa) and Reyes, Raul, Luis Garcia.

No but that doesnt say anything , Reyes , at least by what I've seen today , is a MF . And by what I know Garcia is as much a striker as Ronaldinho or Totti , like it's the last man of the MF , but not yet a strike r, may be wrong though

I still haven't decided who to root for yet, seeing as Ireland didn't make it.

Suggestions?
